Muslims are the target of a security agreement between Israel and UAE. Nationals of 16 countries will have to wear electronic bracelets at Dubai Expo.
SuperCom has announced that it provides tracking electronic bracelets to expand the security measures at the Expo 2020. SuperCom is an Israeli company working in the field of security with products ranging from identity solutions to safety and security equipment. It has worked with various government and private clients from across the world.
The announcement by Ordan Trabelsi, the SuperCom CEO, represents new aspects of the Abraham accord between Israel and UAE. Trabelsi also confirmed that Israeli agents will implement and observe the measures in UAE.
The measure entails the utilization of electronic bracelets for the participants at the Expo. The electronic bracelets will track and observe the conducts of the targets during their visit to Dubai and the Expo. “Our bracelets will monitor the wearers’ location via Bluetooth and GPS technology and is linked to the users’ cell phone. These steps are taken to prevent or minimize criminal acts, espionage, terrorism or sabotage,” Mr. Trabelsi explained.
The world’s largest show will start attracting the visitors from October 1 and continues to work for six full months. The representatives from 191 countries, mostly of private sector, will hold pavilion at the Expo.
Details of the agreement between the two sides, nevertheless, shows that only nationals of Islamic countries are subject to surveillance by these electronic bracelets. 16 countries are the target nations according to the announcements by the SuperCom CEO.
“Anyone who enters the UAE from South Africa, Algeria, Nigeria, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India and Indonesia is obligated to wear an electronic monitoring device, to ensure security measures,” Ordan Trabelsi remarked.
Electronic Bracelets for Muslims Only
Egyptian outlet Almohrer released an interview explaining that the agreement between the Israeli SuperCom and Abu Dhabi officials provide the condition for the controlling only Muslim participants in the Expo 2020. The details of the agreement reveals that the Muslim participants from these countries must only reside in a special number of hotels with surveillance equipment of the electronic bracelets.
The observers believe that the move is under the pressure of Zionist lobbies with influence in the Emirati administrative system. This is because the adoption of policy occurs in a country with a major population of Muslims.
United Arab Emirates announced the prohibition of entry from16 countries, including India, Indonesia, and South Africa a few weeks ago. The embargo may be subject to repeal by the new agreement with SuperCom. The unfolding process signaled the Israeli influence in the decision-making process in Abu Dhabi.
UAE has been under severe criticism for suspicious security arrangements with Tel Aviv following the Abraham accord. SuperCom agreement and electronic bracelets decision may prove the relevance of the concerns and warnings in the past months.
Israel seems to be utilizing the UAE and Expo potential to boost its regional and trans-regional influence. This is while the country faces widespread backlash over Pegasus spyware scandal and its spying famous people around the world.
Developed by NSO group, another Israeli company, Pegasus provided the ground for hacking cell phones of politicians, activists and journalists. Israeli administration denied any role, but the truth needs more investigation.
Apart from security concerns, designating Muslims for the electronic bracelets seems to aim a religious division in the Muslim-majority region. The Islamophobic move makes UAE the primary victim of a plot in which it has the focal role.
